RefCount in the Profilelist RRS feed

  • שאלה

  • In the Windows Registry under ProfileList key there are subkeys for each user in the system.

    What are the values given in these subkeys?

    What each one means and What are the values they can take?

  • Hi Josm,

    According to our research, the path of the ProfileList key is “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\  “.Is the path corresponding with yours?

    The main subkeys for each user are “Default”,“Flags”,“ProfileImagePath”,”ProfileLoadTimeHigh”,” ProfileLoadTimeLow”, ” RefCount ”,”Sid” and ”State”,” RunLogonScriptSync”.

    Default: It's the value whose name is null.

    Flags: enable you to control the installation and uninstallation of your registry entries.

    ProfileImagePath: The User profiles` path.

    ProfileLoadTimeHigh: Profile load time of user
    ProfileLoadTimeLow: Profile load time low of user

    RefCount: `0` value means the account has no active session, not `0`value means the account has an active session.

    Sid:Security Identifier.

    State: indicates the state of the local profile cache.

    • 0001       Profile is mandatory.
    • 0002       Update the locally cached profile.
    • 0004       New local profile.
    • 0008       New central profile.
    • 0010       Update the central profile.
    • 0020       Delete the cached profile.
    • 0040       Upgrade the profile.
    • 0080       Using Guest user profile.
    • 0100       Using Administrator profile.
    • 0200       Default net profile is available and ready.
    • 0400       Slow network link identified.
    • 0800       Temporary profile loaded.

    RunLogonScriptSync : Determines whether the system waits for the logon script to finish running before it starts Windows Explorer and creates the desktop.

    • 0              The logon script and Windows Explorer can run simultaneously.
    • 1               Windows Explorer does not start until the logon script has finished running.

    Best regards

  • Great breakdown of that particular area. At the bottom I see the RunLogonScriptSync can be set to either (0) or (1) and would like to know if changing RunLogonScriptSync from 0 to 1 may help the registry leak warnings I am getting? 

    All my other settings look as they should be and there are no other users on this computer and it is a home unit not on a Network of any sort. Am running W7x64 Hm Prem.

    BTW my RefCount in registry shows 1 should this be 0?
